A Super Easy Way to Get a Fresh Hair Color

I recently celebrated one year since chopping all my hair off. Best decision ever! To honor the occasion, I’ve decided to refresh my hair color. It’s about time, right? I love the season’s cheeriest colors, and a more vibrant spring hair color would nicely complement those styles.

Since I was pleased with my last at-home color treatment (read more about that here), I returned to Walmart to purchase another Schwarzkopf color ULTÎME® product. The assortment of the latest fashion colors in this line drew me to it. After using it, the vibrant and long lasting color made me a repeat user.

During the fall, I chose the color Velvet Brown. For spring, Cinnamon Brown is my top choice in the Schwarzkopf color ULTÎME® line. I like to stay in the deep brunette color family because of my haircut with the fade that grows out quickly. These deeper hues blend well as my fade grows out.

Just like last time, this system makes coloring the hair easy. Everything you will need for the color application process comes inside the box. From the instructions to disposable gloves to  the color applicator, it’s all in there.

Easy steps to a spring hair color

After a few simple steps, I had a fresh-for-spring hair color. Here’s what I had to do: (1) read the instructions, (2) put on the gloves and blend the color cream with the developer lotion, (3) apply the color to my hair, (4) set a timer and wait 30 minutes, then (5) rinse, shampoo, and condition. That’s it!

Here’s a side-by-side view to show my transition. Isn’t the color amazing? I love how vibrant and even shiny it makes my hair appear.

A Chic Way to Wear Your Shirtdress

A tailored shirtdress is such a wardrobe staple. When you find the right one, it can be so versatile. You can wear it on its own, as a tunic with bottoms, or even as a topper. You can also layer under or over a shirtdress to give it a new vibe. As you can imagine, I’m a fan of them because of the styling opportunities they bring. In today’s post, I’m sharing how I’ve been wearing a beautiful floral shirtdress as a lightweight jacket. It’s my shirtdress jacket.

What I’m wearing:

Dress c/o | White tee | White jeans c/o | Pumps (old, similar)

Lip: Mac “Heroine” lipstick | Nails: OPI Lavendurable

The print and color on this shirtdress scream spring! To allow the base turquoise hue to stand out, I decided to wear the shirtdress over a combination of all white. If the whites look familiar, it’s because you saw the same pieces anchoring another outfit (see that look here). I love and treasure those pieces I can wear again and again and actually want to wear often.

To tease out the orange color in the vibrant floral print, I wore my old J.Crew Elsie d’Orsay pumps in flame, a bold orange hue. The lovely thing about this floral pattern is it offers many cool possibilities for playing with color. I spy pink, peach, yellow, and more in the print.

Rock Your Whites With a Bright This Spring

In fashion, you don’t have to pick sides. You can love neutrals, and you can also love brights. You can even rock at the same time for fabulous combinations. I’m particularly fond of an all white outfit cinched together by a bright. See what I mean in today’s post.

What I’m wearing (white outfit):

Blazer c/o | White tee | White jeans c/o | Pumps (old, option)

Lip: Mac “Heroine” lipstick | Nails: OPI Lavendurable

I can’t say enough how essential a pair of white jeans is to my spring and summer style. I’ve had this J.Jill pair (seen before here, here, here, and here) on repeat already this season. They fit flatteringly. They’re also the perfect ankle length for showing off my spring and summer shoes.

Anyway, I paired my white jeans with a white tee last weekend and thought the white outfit needed a little oomph. Listen, I found that perfect finishing touch in my J.Crew Factory Schoolboy blazer. Its color and texture played well with white.

For accessories, I reached for fine jewelry–a dainty lariat gold necklace and gold hoops. I’m also wearing my old favorite Mac “Heroine” lipstick.
